Hi - this is my second thread on Italy. We were trying to book trains from various cities in Italy (Rome to Florence, then to Venice, etc) for our trip next month. My wife also wanted to see if we could also go to Switzerland for a couple of days as well.
Well, the price for train tickets was like over $400, and then we were told we had to spend more money to make reservations on the train, which were another charge of over $400. The total for just the trains was like $900, which was over $100 more than our round trip flights between JFK and Rome.
Is this correct? We need to buy train tickets, and then buy train reservations?
